Escape: The Sure Thing (John and Gwen Bagni)

Responding to a call for help, a ship's doctor realizes he is caught in a deadly struggle over stakes he does not understand. A brutal death is very possible but if the doctor plays his cards right he could walk away with an easy two million dollars.

If it wasn't for the next story, I'd say stories where the protagonist makes a play for easy street generally end badly. Instead I will ask whether it's likely given the nature of the accuser and the lack of evidence if the doctor is really in as hot water as he thinks he is.
